Obama's Science Czar, says: "Forced abortions and mass sterilization needed to save the planet"

John Holdren wrote a book published in 1977 on this very subject!!!

Granted the book was published 30+ years ago, but WHY wasn't the public informed of his viewpoint prior to his appointment?! Did Obama fail do properly vet his little Czar? Or is this just "par for the course?!"

Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not;

The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation's drinking water or in food;

Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise;

People who "contribute to social deterioration" (i.e. undesirables) "can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility" -- in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.

  • Remember that in the 1970's there was a lot of support for "zero population growth", that we were certain to all die off by the 1990's. I remember as a teenager being surprised, when our family drove on a trip, to see vast stretches of good green land entirely empty - how was this over-crowding? I wondered.

    But some people have never re-visited the ideas to compare them with reality.

    (Similarly, Silent Spring by Rachel Carson is based on false data and instills faulty values. These mistaken values - to this day - motivate a lot of environmental activism.)

    It's fine for someone to be working from false premises, but if you elevate him to power over the direction of science research and application in the most powerful science nation, it is no longer fine. ...

    I already have enough reservations about gov't-wide programs like vaccinations, without having to include worrying about an elite with a hidden agenda !

  • A transnational "Planetary Regime" should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans' lives -- using an armed international police force.

  • I think we would be doing the earth a huge favor to force crackheads into abortion. There are WAAAY to many people having kids that shouldn't be having kids. Then those kids grow up & have 4 more crack babies, then those crack babies grw up & each have 4 more crack babies & it just turns into a vicous cycle. Yeah....forced abortions for crackheads/drug addicts....they would probably be willing anyway. I bet you wouldn't really have to FORCE them.

    Sterilization would be even better IMO, then we woouldn't even have to make the crack momma's have abortions.

  • This is DEFINITELY "just par for the course" ... for instance, the top legal adviser Obama appointed is a vigorous supporter of over-riding US law and the US Constitution with international law, or laws from other countries. ... The Health Secretary has activist personal views which she brought into her work as a Governor to go around legal procedures, so she'll probably do that with our national health department, no matter how unprofessional that would be.

    The parade of dishonest or unfair people - dozens - being raised to positions of extreme power is a major part of conservatives' incredulous outrage about Obama's actions. We just don't hear about them in the mainstream media ...

  • Wow, ANON! Your opinions aside, what's to stop this Czar from telling YOU (being the upstanding citizen that you must be) from having any more children?  Ever here the phrase, "give them an inch, and they'll take a mile?!"

  • What the hell this is life we are talking about. You can't force abortions and it's not right to make people sterile against there will even if it's a crack head they can change you. Isn't that going against the constitutanal rights not to mention you right as a damn human being.

    And this is what scares me the most! Since SO MANY voters out there do NOT do their research, and depend on the MSM and their local paper and newscasts to inform them of everything they need to know.

  • There should be population control in the United States, you see what happens when idiots vote in large numbers, right?

  • And for those who think BLOGS are "NOT CREDIBLE," where was the MSM on this story?

    Where is Katie Couric, Brian Williams, CNN, New York Times. and all of the other people you rely on to "educate" you?! It took a BLOG to uncover this one!

  • Well, honestly, I believe that some form of population control needs to take place, because obviously the people aren't capable of doing it on their own.

    (I said this in a response months ago and got a ton of flack for it - but i don't really care) Remember the Star Ship Troopers? Remember how they had to have a license to have a child? I honestly think that a system similar to that would be fantastic as far as population growth is concerned.
